This card sort is designed as an investigation of transformations to the graphs of radical functions as they relate to the domain, range and roots.
Students are asked to match corresponding equations, graphs, domains, ranges, and x-intercepts. Once the cards are matched, students are tasked with grouping the matched cards according to their own criteria (such as transformations, end behavior, etc.).
This card sort emphasizes radical functions, function transformations, multiple representations, characteristics of graphs, reasoning, and communication skills.
Teacher and Student Instructions and an answer key are provided.
